In March, 2016, the Appellate Division, in an unpublished but very important decision by the Court, decided to affirm the lower court's decision to allow Ms. Ungar's client (an out of state resident with second degree gun possession charges) into PTI (Pre-trial Intervention) over the State's objection. This decision came as a result of a very vigorous defense by Ms. Ungar of the filing of the motion to allow him into PTI over the State's objection, which the Court granted.
